Hamirpur, June 10

Despite unexpected rains in summer, a water crisis hit many villages in the district and people were forced to travel long distances to get sufficient water for daily use.

The situation aggravated due to water requirement for livestock. Many farmers rear five animals on an average in villages. It was reported that most affected villages were in Bamsan, Jahu and Dhaned area of the district. Significantly, the shortage of water is a routine feature in these areas and the administration usually supplies water through tankers but this year, this practice is yet to be started.

Meanwhile, an NGO, Dr Pushpinder Verma Fans Club, which was sanitising villages, started water supply through tractor tankers. Sunil Sharma, coordinator of the club, said over 20 tankers of water were sent to different villages.

Debashweta Banik, DC, said some reports had surfaced regarding the water crisis and the Department of Irrigation and Public Health was directed to provide water to affected villages. — OC
